Avoid the extra baggage fees while still fully experiencing adventures by bike when you travel. The Ritchey Break-Away road frame is a full-size bike that can be split apart to fit into its own special travel case that's basically the same size as a normal checked bag at the airport.

The Break-Away Road frame is made from Ritchey heat-treated CrMo butted steel tubing and includes a Ritchey WCS Carbon Fork and headset. Aside from its fantastic ride performance, the magic of this bike is in its patented locking compression system, which adds only 100 grams to the weight of the bike. The downtube is split near the bottom bracket and is fastened together with a simple locking ring. A double seatpost clamp up top secures the frame there. This system is strong and completely reliable—you'll never know you're riding a bike that you can split in half and pack in its own bag in less than twenty minutes.

Case, padding, cable disconnects and couplers also included in Frame Kit.
